Artwork and Words by Daina, 16 NSW
“A conversation can change a life”. My art making practice is driven by what we can’t say in words. The tension often experienced by those awkward conversions which can have the most impact, is what is expressed in this work. Titled ‘Conversation Piece’, the use of colour and expressive line emphasises the modality of having the ability to reach out and make that first connection.
This work is inspired by my human experiences. Expression can be hard for many, so often I chose art over words and this is my manifestation of the impact we can have on others. Putting yourself out there is a sign of courage, let others hear your story.
